Facts about Kiwi

  • Breed: Amazon
  • Color: Green
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: $400.00
This is Kiwi. He is a Yellow-Naped Amazon, presumed male, and approximately 18 years old. Due to the death of his owner and life companion several months ago, Kiwi could no longer be cared for by his wife and daughter the way they wanted to. His owner was very ill for quite some time, therefore he has not been handled in several years. Despite his previous owner being male, he is very female preferential, and will NOT be adopted out to a male. He is beautiful and quite the chatter box. He has learned to whistle the Andy Griffith song, and some of the things he says are, "hey bird, Corrina, Corrina dear, are we friends, is there anybody in there, hi Kiwi, whatcha doing." He makes all kinds of noises as well. Since he has been with us, he has stepped up a handful of times, but would prefer not to if he could have it his way. He isn't quite comfortable with head scratches yet either. Kiwi would need a very patient adopter who is familiar with Amazons, and understands that they are one-person birds and that it can take them quite a long time to get comfortable and warm up. I would not recommend him for children, and he does not get along with other birds. He would do best in a home as an only parrot.

Our Adoption Process...

All interested adopters must have an adoption application on file with us prior to visitation. We strive to find each bird the best possible home that will compliment their personality, and we do believe that the birds pick their new owners, therefore, we do require that potential adopters spend some time with the bird they are interested in. If you seem like a good match for one of the birds, You will be contacted to schedule an appointment to come out and meet the birds. Note that application does not guarantee adoption. Home visits as well as references are generally required to ensure that our birds will not be placed in breeder situations, with hoarders, or other unsuitable environments. We will however, make exceptions for the right home.
